    Afternoon all,

    My 1.5 TFSi is due its’ first MOT in September and the main dealer where I purchased the car has advised a brake fluid change is also required as my car nears 3 years of age. They have quoted £55.85 for the MOT and £83 for the brake fluid change totalling £137.85

    Although it’s a bit far away from me I found the following Audi main dealer offer:

    https://www.swanswaygarages.com/audi/servicing-parts-offers/brake-fluid-and-mot-offer/

    which is basically £99 for both and includes MOT protection.

    My local Audi main dealer has priced matched at £99 but don’t offer the MOT protection.

    Does this sound like a fair main dealer offer?

    Cheers

    MOT can be had cheaper elsewhere (£55.85 is the maximum that can be charged, and they’ll have it done by an MOT station anyway) - no need to use dealer for that. Likewise brake fluid change, my local VAG specialist charges £40. So £99 is pretty good for main dealer, you could probably save £10-15 by using a local garage, as none of the work requires Specialist Audi input.

    My Audi indi is charging £50 for the MOT and £45 for the brake fluid. So £99 from Audi is good value on the face of it.

    Whether they do as good a job in reality as the indi is another question.

    You can get an MOT from £27 at Kwik fit though...
